Kristal weisen is not my favorite style.... Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 28, 2005
Clear golden, light white head. Phenolic nose full of cloves, dough and citrus. Faint floral aspects, banana esters and lemon citric bite make up most of the flavors. light carbonation, light-medium body. Average. Suttree (6392) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 23, 2005
Clear yellow with an enormous whit head. Veggie, yeasty, slightly sour aroma. Bready, with hints of banana flavors. Finishes with a faint woodsy note (Cedar, maybe?). I really don’t get this style - filter wheat beers seems to turn them into an average lite yellow ale. There is nothing wong with this beer, but it feels like any unique character is missing.

(Bottle 50 cl) Comes as: "Franziskaner Weissbier Kristallklar". Beautiful yellowish golden, low head. Lots of fruity esters - Spaten has pretty much maintained them in the brew in spite of the filtration. Less dry than other Kristalls. 080699 Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 17, 2005
Pours with a massive white head, clear pale yellow body. Aroma- wow! Sweet with bananna esters and an herbal spiciness, just a touch of dryness rounds it out. Bitter taste up front, opens up to a great citrus taste while maintaining dry bitterness. Well balanced. Body was a little watery which was a dissapointment, but the rest of this beer is quite good.

Pours a very pale white gold. Fizzy, with a huge egg-shell head and quite lacy. Smells grassy and peppery. Light banana and clove aromas as well.
Taste is fruity wheat malt, underpinned nicely with wispy banana and clove flavors. Lightly bitter in the finish. Crisp and refreshing. Surprisingly good. Not only do the Germans make a superior hefeweizen, they may just make the best filtered wheats as well.

Pour is a pale yellow with a huge white head. Aroma is yeasty but nothing overpowering. Flavor is a little banana here and a little yeast there but again nothing overpowering. There is nothing bad with this beer and its the first i have had of this style. Its just missing something. I would describe this as half lager and half hefe.

THinking abouyt this beer after tasting the other to Franziskaner was a little hard to guess I would like it. BUt it was rreally ok, I liked it. It has the Franziskaner and Weath speciall flavor. Padron4KM (810) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - APR 9, 2005

Pours clear golden, with a huge fluffy marshmallow white head that lasted for what seemed like an eternity. As it slowly receded it left chunks of sticky lace in it’s wake.
Aroma is fruity and a little grainy.
Flavor is a litle fruity with a little pepper.
Finish is clean with a little touch of wheat. I prefer the unfilterd version.
Aroma has medium strength and is malt, apple, and yeast. Also in the flavor the same things are found but the apple is more sour and the yeast is obviously a fine strain of its kind only found in Germany or neighboring countries. Somewhat of a pepper taste with hint of lime leaf. Gold in a appearance with some light green tint found. Fizzy white head that is naturally big at first but will be put into check within a matter of a minute. Good drinking beer, and i was able to put my weizen glass back to use.
